    Default GNAC Future

    Forgive the RMAC guy not knowing if this has been addressed already, but what is the word on the future of GNAC football with Humboldt dropping it? It seems CWU is committed to football and Asuza also. I can't say I am too familiar with Western Oregon. All I know about Simon Fraser is that their team is awful and they don't even care enough to put up some damn bleachers. I hope all four programs survive and stay at the D2 level, and I was hoping some of you PNW folks would have some local insight.

    Heard some possible good news about a scheduling agreement last weekend. SFU is committed to getting better as is WOU. We don't have enough teams, but the talent and coaching are there.

    You My Sir Are A Wanker. Your ignorance is impressive with your knowledge of Simon Fraser. I've only called one other individual a Wanker. So please wear your badge of shame proudly.

    Just remind him that Dixie State and SD Mine's last year in the conference what SFU's record was against those two teams. Maybe if SFU went to the RMAC they could jump to 6 wins a season too!

    Many would agree with you that I'm a wanker. And I suppose since I'm an RMAC guy, you can give me grief that in 2014 you beat Dixie and South Dakota Mines. I can't help but notice those were your last 2 wins at the D2 level. I bear SFU no ill will. Just win some games and get some stands.

    Highway Grill is our resident crap-talker now that Jack has disappeared. I'm glad that SFU actually has some passionate fans.

    Are the 4 remaining teams going to be independents in football? Join another conference for football? Because I believe (and correct me if I’m wrong) a conference can’t have less then 5 teams.

    Highway Grill is funny! He goes on the attack when somebody asks questions to get more information and to learn about Simon Fraser. I have not heard the expression of "wanker" since I was stationed in England. Simon Fraser would stand a chance of winning a few games against the USAF base teams that play football in Europe. Again some of them are pretty bad! The USAF base teams are somewhere between big high schools and NAIA teams.

    Pueblo and Mines have enough easy games as is.

    Are you RMAC and NSIC guys here to actually talk about the future of the GNAC, or are you just here to talk trash?

    Looks like it was a SFU & CWU fan who really started the trash. Can't fault others for joining in the fun can you?

    Nah, it was the guy that crapped on WOU and SFU despite most likely knowing nothing about their programs. SFU has had a hard time of it, but they've actually got some fight in them this year after picking up a new coach. They also released a plan to upgrade their football field. WOU has had a solid team the entire time I've been following D2 football, and they do it with limited resources. The GNAC's biggest problem regarding football isn't the remaining teams, it's geography and the downward trend football as a whole is facing.

    No one dissed WOU, he said he didn't know much about them? SFU has been terrible, I don't know about their bleacher situation. Glad their new coach has things headed in a better direction.

    I definitely won't call you Wanker, although I love that word. I'll just call you an ass clown. You don't know anything about Simon Fraser and their athletics. You wouldn't have a clue about their stadium or lack of stands if it wasn't for someone else posting it so you piggyback off of it. What you need to know Simon Fraser is competitive an all their Sports other than football. They are a sleeping giant with high academic standards very competitive to the University of Washington and Gonzaga.

    I don't feel it's fair to say I crapped on Western Oregon. I said I don't know much about them. Literally all that I know about WOU is that they play in the GNAC. I really only have any animosity towards Colorado Mesa (conference rivalry), Grand Valley State (their coaches in the press box were a bunch of schmucks during a playoff game) and Angelo State for weaseling out of a game vs CSU-P after we handed them their ass at Jerryworld the season before. I want D2 football to thrive, and that includes the 4 remaining GNAC teams. Yes I threw a little smack at SFU. I was thinking about it and maybe it was unfair. I am sure they have unique challenges. I don't know how recruiting in a different country works. For instance is their a limit on foreign players, as in CFL? I don't know how Canadian kids feel about NCAA D2 vs U Sports. Regardless of all that, the whole point of this thread for me, was what happens to these four schools? Does the GNAC try to add NAIA/D3 teams? Do the 4 schools look for another football conference to join. Does SFU go back to U Sports? Do any of these teams drop football? In the end I want to see all four of these teams in D2 and on solid footing. So you can call me a wanker or any other damn thing, but I still wish your schools nothing but the best. I am hoping you all succeed. Unless you play CSU Pueblo. Then for that week, Go Pack.

    So their football team, as I said, has been terrible. I stated I don't know about their bleacher situation, nor do I care. I certainly didn't piggyback a d@mn thing, you must be having a bad day and need an outlet. That's good for them, last I checked though this is a football forum.

    I think I was called a wanker for having the audacity for sticking up for my alma mater. I'm not sure what wanker is, though I think coach Ford has SFU moving in the right direction.

    There are a few NAIA schools that would make good fits for the GNAC, but the Frontier League is pretty strong and I don't know that the teams want to switch. Carroll could make the switch, as well as College of Idaho, and perhaps Rocky Mountain College. Montana Tech would have to add sports. Southern Oregon has looked into switching as well. The D3 schools in the area are all small religious schools and they have their own thing going. I doubt any of them move up.

    Eastern Oregon is doing great in football right now and I've heard they have 16 scholarships; they're building an indoor field house, and have improved their facilities. I don't think the jump would be that great for them, though I'm wondering if they would struggle in men's and women's hoops. They're really good in cross country and track. EOU also has in-state tuition for Washington and Idaho residents (it used to be in-state for everybody).

    SOU would be a natural fit, too, as would College of Idaho. If they could get those three schools, it would be great, but I'm not counting on it.

    Tim, any rumblings about NNU adding football? I have heard that there are some jealous looks across I84 when CoI draws those 5k crowds and is increasing enrollments.
